Echingman Early Origins



The surname Echingman was first found in Sussex where they held a family seat as Lords of the Manor of Echingham from very ancient times some say from the time of the Norman Conquest by Duke William of Normandy in 1066 A.D.

Echingman Spelling Variations



Norman surnames are characterized by a multitude of spelling variations. The frequent changes in surnames are largely due to the fact that the Old and Middle English languages lacked definite spelling rules. The introduction of Norman French to England, as well as the official court languages of Latin and French, also had pronounced influences on the spelling of surnames. Since medieval scribes and church officials recorded names as they sounded, rather than adhering to any specific spelling rules, it was common to find the same individual referred to with different spellings. The name has been spelled Echingham, Etchingham, Echington, Etchington, Ichingham, Itchingham, Itchington, Ichington, Eckingham and many more.

The Great Migration



Many English families emigrated to North American colonies in order to escape the political chaos in Britain at this time. Unfortunately, many English families made the trip to the New World under extremely harsh conditions. Overcrowding on the ships caused the majority of the immigrants to arrive diseased, famished, and destitute from the long journey across the stormy Atlantic. Despite these hardships, many of the families prospered and went on to make invaluable contributions to the development of the cultures of the United States and Canada. Early North American immigration records have revealed a number of people bearing the name Echingman or a variant listed above: James Etchingham who settled in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in 1860.
